Proposals for Research Funding from POPI
time to time, POPI is able to offer a limited funding for research by
students and faculty. In 2003,
POPI Co-Directors adopted the following criteria, which POPI funded
projects are expected to meet:
Proposed research projects will be:
with POPI’s core strength – the integration of scientific or
medical perspectives along with managerial or policy perspectives.
with the expectation that each project would include both
readily identifiable scientific/technological and management/policy
with the expectation that each project would include two faculty as
advisors or mentors – one each from science/technology and
management/policy; at least one of the faculty will be an affiliate of
Examples of research topics that would be expected
to fit the above guidelines include:
how advancing science and technology are influencing changes in drug
discovery and development.
scientific advances in pharmaceuticals to future health care.
considerations associated with developing drugs in underserved or
ill-defined disease areas.
issues associated with advances in pharmaceutical manufacturing
science and technology.
POPI Co-Directors specified processes by which
such proposed research would normally come to their attention:
participation by prospective student and faculty researchers in a POPI-sponsored
workshop or conference.
participation in 15.136j, 10.547j, 7.547j, HST.920j, “Principles
and Practice of Drug Development”, a class taught jointly each
Fall term by all four POPI Co-Directors.
POPI’s regular planning process.
proposals from MIT students and faculty for POPI research support will be considered twice annually by POPI
for Summer and Fall support must be submitted by the prior May 1st;
those for Spring support are due the preceeding November 1st.
Proposals can be submitted to any one of the POPI Co-Directors.
working papers, manuscripts and publications emerging from partial support
from POPI are expected to acknowledge, in writing, the source of that
support through POPI.
